More about Refrigerant Slider
Refrigerant Slider, now a part of Ref Tools, helps you quickly calculate the pressure-to-temperature ratio for more than 80 refrigerants, including natural refrigerants such as ammonia and transcritical CO2.

Refrigerant Slider also provides you with information about each refrigerant, including Global Warming Potential (GWP) and Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP). You can switch between the IPCC AR4 and AR5 values, where AR4 values are used in relation to the European F-Gas regulations.

Refrigerant Slider’s P/T calculations use extended curve–fitting models based on Refprop 10 results. You can also see both dew and bubble point for refrigerants with glide.

Streamline your workflow

Ref Tools goes beyond just providing quick access to helpful tools; it helps you save time by allowing you to track your most visited service sites and save unique settings for each one. Simplify each service call with ease.

Please fix just a few things.

First of all I do love this app and appreciate it, it takes away the hassle of having to either carry around a P/T chart or look up each refrigerant individually which makes jobs a lot easier. The only thing that annoys me right now is that on my new iPhone 10 the list of refrigerants seems to be shifted upwards to where I cannot tap on the top of the list as it is blocked by the search bar, mainly R-12. I would greatly appreciate if this was fixed and can provide pictures if you need further evidence. Otherwise an invaluable tool for every HVAC/R tech.

Developer Response ,

Hi, would just like to inform you that an update went live today (18.11.19) that should resolve the issue iOS 13 caused with selecting refrigerants. This is a major update to the app, so we hope that you appreciate the changes. Please reach out if you experience any problems with the new version.

Best one I’ve found

Although I would like to see R-11 in the next update. Also R-123 only goes down to 40 degrees.

Developer Response ,

Hi, would just like to inform you that in the latest update, R-11 is now available in the refrigerants list. Hope that improves your experience with the app. Please let us know if you have other suggestions for improvement.

Best PT chart app!

Best PT chart app available for iPhone and believe me I’ve tried them all. Easily slide through P&R and change between dew and bubble at the flip of a switch. Lots of refrigerants
